Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – An informational meeting concerning Northern Michigan UniversityÂ’s 2005 summer semester trip to Vienna will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, in Jamrich Hall room 203. 

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  This will be the second trip to Vienna that NMU has offered.  Students of all foreign language backgrounds are invited to spend four weeks (May 14-June 11) learning the grammatical and conversational aspects of the German language at the Actilingua Language Institute and explore the culture of the city in their free time after classes.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  “Vienna is a walking city, which was the reason we chose it,” said Carol Strauss, an NMU modern languages professor and co-organizer of the trip. “Everything is within walking distance.  But in case students want to travel outside the city they are given transportation cards for the subways, trains and buses.”  Â Ã‚ Ã‚ 

Students will also have the opportunity to experience Vienna’s musical culture at inexpensive concerts and operas, including the Vienna Boys Choir.  Tours of museums, palaces and the University of Vienna will also be available. 

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  For more information, contact Strauss at 227-1201 or Robbie Goodrich at 227-2037.
